The Worlds Best Parties - Rio de Janeiro


Rio de Janeiro is the party capital of Brazil and the home to the most extravagant carnival in the world. Great beaches such as the Copacabana and Ipanema as well as compelling samba rhythms set the scene at one of the planet's best party venues.

"Although Carnival (Carnaval in Portuguese) is celebrated in towns and villages throughout Brazil and other Catholic countries, Rio de Janeiro has long been regarded as the Carnival Capital of the World. The Rio Carnaval is not only the biggest Carnival, benchmark against which every other carnival is compared but also one of the most interesting artistic events on the Globe. Pretty much everyone has heard of the Rio Carnaval. Foreign visitors to it alone number around 500,000 every year." (Rio-carnival.net)
